    was the 87 blade heavy?

    the 85 looks like it lost a lot of blade material

    I like the non-tradition approach. Looks different. Mag latch. So kudos for that. BUTT (yes, I know I'm stealing this)…

    - I don't like the looks of the handle
    - I don't like where they put the butterfly (that's gonna get wiped away with use or sharpened)
    - The price point...OMG that price point...HOLY SHIT THAT PRICE POINT
    - The Tachyon style slit in the blade...should only be on a Tachyon

    ***I'd be happy if somebody gave me one
